Peek at the Week: December 5

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

In Life of Pi, Pi said, “Above all: Don’t lose hope.”

Happy Last Week of Classes, Wildcats! In one week’s time, classes will be over, and finals will have officially begun. I don’t know about you, but I’ve definitely been struggling with burnout. Last week, my message was to push through, a difficult yet rewarding feat. The message still stands.

Another equally challenging feat is remaining hopeful. It’s easy to feel like you’re swinging at nothing, truly stabbing in the dark. But staying hopeful will pay off in the long run. So, Wildcats, don’t lose hope. In a little under three weeks, it will pay off.

HOLIDAYS THIS WEEK

Not sure what to wear today? Well, today, Dec. 5, is National Blue Jeans Day. Whether your go-to brand is American Eagle, Old Navy, Target, or the G.O.A.T., Levis and whether you prefer wide leg, skinny, relaxed, or bootcut, celebrate by throwing on your favorite pair of blue jeans. After all, they go with nearly everything.

Tuesday, Dec. 6, is Walt Disney Day. Although Walt Disney himself is probably not worth revering, Disney movies still hold a special place in many of our hearts. Celebrate the hardworking animators and production teams by watching some of your favorite Disney movies (or something from their now extended portfolio, which includes Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm content). In Falvey’s DVD Collection, we have quite a few Disney movies, including The Lion King and (live action) Alice in Wonderland, and extended Disney-owned content, such as Up, WALL-E, Brave, Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, and Black Panther. 

For anyone that needs some end-of-the-semester chocolate therapy, Thursday, Dec. 8, is National Brownie Day. If you’re in the mood to celebrate, treat yourself to some chocolatey goodness. And if that doesn’t satisfy your sweet tooth, swing by Falvey between 12 and 2 p.m. for some donuts (free of charge) and stress-relieving activities at our Semi-Annual Stress-Busting Open House for finals season.

Sunday, Dec. 11, is National App Day. Although Gen Z gets a lot of flack for our supposed over-reliance on our phones, I honestly don’t know many people that don’t appreciate (at least a little) the power smart devices give us. You can celebrate today by using and appreciating your favorite apps (and not feeling guilty for it).
